I don't mind it, maybe separated from the signature line that people have. The only other thing that could have taken up some of the large space under post would be to increase the size of signature pictures if someone wanted to use them.

I personally liked it better the other way...with everything under the avatar. Reason being, I am legally blind in one eye and the other one has problems focusing at times. Even with the larger point on the stats, I still have to lean in and strain to see it.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

I don't mind the idea of putting the information in each post rather than the avatar box, however arranging bullet points in a sentence format is confusing. Could you arrange the information in a table or each piece of info on its own line?

-Location
-Posts
-Join date
-Gender
-Horses
-Carrots

Or even like this:
-Location -Posts
-Join Date -Gender
-Horses -Carrots

^^That was meant to be spaced out so that the second group of stats are halfway across the page but when I post it takes the spacing out.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Oh, another thought. And being completely computer illiterate it might not be possible.

Leave the avatar and that on the left side and make a similar box on the right side with the information in it.

There's an interesting idea!

Now that sounds like an idea.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mike.

Most of us know you have a full time job and do whatever you can to make this site workable and reasonable for all to enjoy.

I am sure that you are doing the best you can and I from my own admin experience know that not all requests can be filled to each individual's personal tastes(template restrictions) so I will say thank you for all your efforts.

I liked the other way better. Just looked like the information was more organized. But, I think we can all adapt to change. =D

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I liked that you could click to links the old way. I did find it easier to read also therefore easier to identify people -- especially where they are so as to be try to have responses that may be relative to the posters part of the world.

The only things that ever irritated me about the old layout:
1. If someone puts in a picture that was HUGE and I have to scroll right and left. Should be a limit on the size of pics.
2. The annoying google advertisement in the middle of a post causes me to reload the page to be able to read it. But for free I can get over it!
